2012 Cliff Lede Cabernet Sauvignon Beautiful Generation

Stags Leap District more

5/28/2015 - SonnyChiba wrote: 92 points

Huge wine, so rich and almost overripe as a lot of 2012 Napa cabs seem to be, but this keeps it together nicely. Very complex on the nose and palate and needed serious air time to be drinkable. Will be great in time. 92-93+.

Tasted at the winery. 1st vintage of Poetry for CL. Really fantastic and aging gracefully. A lot of depth in fruit, soft and elegant. On the young side still but delicious.

Cliff Lede is rapidly becoming one of my favorite winemakers. This is a beautiful Bordeaux style blend from Napa and does not disappoint. Soft tannins and balanced fruit. This wine is still young and needs a few more years in the bottle to unlock its potential, but great stuff.

I usually drink these the summer after release, which I think is best. I just got the '13s, but found this and opened it last night. Very nice, round citrus flavors with some grassy notes. Even one year of cellar time has mellowed the refreshing acidity and spice that I really like about these wines, and given it more body.

Big fruit. Quite concentrated and lots of alcohol but without the burn. This is a big boy!

The best vintage of their SLD that I can recall. Layers of dark, ripe fruit with chocolate, coffee and lavendar notes. Rich and balanced. Delicious,, classic Stag's Leap.

Consistent notes with previous. Watch out for a disintegrating cork. Although the wine has aged well, the cork has not.

Beautiful wine. Drinking very well at the moment - decanted for 2.5 hours and then drunk over the next 4.

Friday Night Double Blind Mondo $100+ (Bin 75): Black core with tiny garnet rim; sweet nutty oak, pain grille, deep plush black currant, slight green pepper, some dark chocolate, nice perfume, New World but good restraint; chocolate, great structure, ripe but balanced, dark fruit, tobacco; fruit profile is a little dark for me but this was very high quality.

Strong fruit nose when first opened. Two hour decant, needed it to smooth out and open up. Drank over four hours and was solid the whole time. Really an excellent cab.

Dark ruby / garnet with minimal sediment, this is drinking perfectly at the moment.

Dark berries, plum and black strawberry combine to give a thrilling Napa cab nose and taste with long, long finish.

If a date, this was a 25 year old accountant+model who asks to pay the bill so you can head back to the hotel room together. You of course agree as your thoughts turn to fantasy

Fantastic, memorable juice!

Splash decanted - Wow! This is hitting on all cylinders tonight. By far the best bottle of this vintage I have drunk. I believe this to be in it peak which I expect to last another 5 years. Enjoy!

Rich dark currant, violet and creamy notes, in a nicely balanced package with just enough restraint. This is quite lovely and very easy to enjoy with about an hour of airing.
